Just as I was running out of ideas on ways to avoid coming back to work, the Giftware Association kindly provided me with a good one for coming back. So, I’m half way down a ravine with my five year old (expedition leader, if you must know) when I get an e.mail saying that our Twinkle Twinkle Birthdays and Quirke & Co ranges have been shortlisted for Gift of the Year.
Ok, ok, that’s not quite how it happened. I wasn’t half way down a ravine, though we did do that, and the five year old was the expedition leader. But it sounds better than “I was sitting on the sofa when I got an e.mail….” You know I’m right!
Naturally, we’re delighted. Got back Sat night and the hard copy deadline is tomorrow, so some frantic picking and packing and labelling ensued. Fingers crossed. We like them. Our customers like them. So let’s hope the judging panel likes them too.
